Q&A with Entrepreneur & Kushy Punch
What do you think are the biggest misconceptions cannabis industry?
The cannabis industry does not consist of lawbreakers and stoners. We are a professional, law-abiding, and capable group of professionals who are dedicated to enriching people's lives through cannabis education and consumption. We truly believe in the social, health, and economic benefits this industry provides.
How is your business innovating?
Kushy Punch is dedicated to being on the cutting edge of safety, regulatory adherence, and customer satisfaction. From laboratory testing, to production machinery, to packaging, we seek out and even create new methods and tools to ensure our mission is always successful and our customers always receive the highest quality product on the market.
What was the biggest hurdle you had to overcome in your business?
Knocking down the stigma attached to cannabis has been the primary challenge in this industry. Be it from the government or the media, due to prohibition, there has been longstanding resistance to cannabis. The restrictions on studying the amazing health benefits of this plant has set up numerous roadblocks in educating the public. However, we see challenges not as walls to stop us, but as doors for us to open in our mission to grow and help those who need and want it.
What is your favorite aspect of working in this industry?
Reading or hearing from our fans that our products changed their lives is probably the most rewarding experience we can ask for. We receive dozens of messages every single day. These messages, while sometimes heartbreaking due to what these folks are dealing with, are also encouraging. The veteran, the senior citizen, the mother dealing with cancer, the grandfather dealing with Parkinson's; listening to their stories of how our products help them feel whole again, that is what makes everything worth it. These are the stories that drive us and keep us motivated.
What inspires you?
Our inspiration comes from doing what is right, what is good, and what is just. When the Kushy Punch family comes to work, we do so with a drive that is unparalleled. Due to federal prohibition, we risk our livelihoods every day to fight the good fight. We believe in what Kushy Punch is accomplishing. We believe in the benefits of cannabis and our products. We believe that we can help make this world a better and happier place one gummy and one patient at a time.
